NGT stays ban on old diesel vehicles till May 25


New Delhi: The National Green Tribunal has extended its stay order banning 10 year old diesel vehicle from Delhi road till May 25.

Noting that diesel is prime source of air pollution in Delhi, the Tribunal on April 7 had held that all diesel vehicles which are more than 10 years old will not be permitted to ply in Delhi-NCR.

Earlier, the NGT had stayed its order for two weeks to impound diesel vehicles, heavy or light, plying in the capital for more than 10 years.
